Mount Hope Regional Band

The impetus for the creation of Harmony for Hope, Inc. was a group of band geeks looking to revive a broken community through music. The Mount Hope Alumni Band, founded in 2011, began to practice on a semi-yearly basis after the closing and consolidation of Mount Hope High School.  From this group, a team emerged interested in providing more opportunities for children centered around music and art. After a series of fundraising Facebook promotions in 2016, the group established an organization dedicated to uniting West Virginia’s communities through music, art, and Appalachian Heritage.

playing new songs

The Mount Hope Regional Band is a heritage showband continuing a long-standing regional tradition. Members of the group come from communities including: Beckley, Oak Hill, Fayetteville, Shady Spring, Glen Jean, Hilltop, Odd, Ghent, and Princeton, WV. By sharing the importance marching bands played in developing the culture of early West Virginians, we hope to see a revival in participation for community-based heritage show band’s throughout Southern West Virginia.  

No matter how long it’s been since you were active in a marching band, we have a chair for you. ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME!
